SBHS Viking Closet Prom Dress Drive Returns

Second annual drive collects used prom dresses to be donated to less fortunate South Brunswick students.

Everyone imagines a perfect prom.

Prom is a time to have fun, create new memories, and really shine. The Viking Closet in South Brunswick High School is taking prom dress donations this year, to help the girls at prom shine.

This year’s drive is going until March 22, 2013. Formal and semi-formal dresses of any shape, size, or length are welcome for donation. The drop off is located in the main lobby of the high school.

If you are an SBHS student interested in picking out a dress, visit the annex library in SBHS on April 4, 2013 between 2:45 p.m. and 6 p.m. Any SBHS students are welcome to pick out a dress.

The Viking Closet is a South Brunswick High School organization dedicated to helping students obtain clothing and accessory essentials. The Viking Closet runs solely on donations from businesses, the community, students and staff.

Donations are taken (and washed) year round, and all students are welcome to shop, no questions asked. Various items are available, including clothing, shoes, sneakers, bags, and accessories. The Closet works with various organizations such as South Brunswick Social Services. Students may also volunteer to help at the Closet in order to obtain community service hours.

The Prom Dress Drive is the Viking Closet’s way of assuring that no student will miss out on the opportunity of going to prom because of finances. Last year, over 400 dresses were donated.  The previous year’s drive was a huge success, and we hope this year will be too.

Please “like” the South Brunswick Viking Closet Page on Facebook to help spread the news about the event. You can email any questions to vikingcloset@gmail.com.

Through your donations, a true sense of sisterhood can be created in the South Brunswick Community.
